    Wilbur got a reaction from JJ McG in St Mirren v Arbroath League Cup 9/7   
    This match is our first meaningful fixture for the season ahead. 
    It has more importance than any of the three friendlies beforehand. The fans will be given their first opportunity to see what Robinson's own squad has to offer. 
    I'm looking forward to seeing this one. And a fiver for an old git is good value IMO. COYS.

    Would have been "free" if you'd picked the other major.

    Wilbur got a reaction from JJ McG in Jack Ross Must Go.   
    I hope it's quicksand. 
    Paul Sturrock was a cheating we arsewipe that continually backed into defenders to win fouls. A despicable wee bawbag.
    One of my happiest experiences was the penalty shoot-out that kept us in the Premier and confined them to the Oblivion league.
    I hope Ross fails massively. This job is his last chance saloon. If he gets sacked here he is stuffed !!

    I worked in all the departments upstairs at one time or another.  Enjoyed O+M and Payroll/other Accounts.
    George was my hero and mentor (despite being a bluenose).  I was just another in a line of apprentices passing through, but I did an aptitude test and he kinda signed me up… and taught me to drive (so he could enjoy going to the pub) and got me pay rises.
    great guy.
    ( moved on to London in June 1970)
    bumped into him in Anchor Mills when I was in there for my Faither’s leaving do some years later.  It was an unofficial do, and  I shouldnae have been in there.  (The Print Shop).  There was evident alcohol.  Cake, sandwiches…
     
    The “shut” door opened…. A big guy with a suit and tie walked in!

     
    Ooops….worries…. Concerns for the Print’s sub-manager about what to say….
    Nae Buddie knew what to do till the Big Guy recognised me and me him!  We had a hug!
    George toasted mah Faither’s health and I toasted George.  We had a few beers later.
    He has gone now, I heard.

    Did you work beside George Edgar ? I remember him from when I worked upstairs for a few years from the mid-70s.

    Ok, I'll go full saddo too.
    I confess that I don't understand a single sentence of your post SS.
    Maybe I've missed out on 30-odd years of endless fun and excitement, or maybe I've just done different things with my life.

    3-D printers. Wow, who even imagined such a thing was possible ?
    And the advances in technology behind weather forecasting are amazing. Thirty years ago the Met Office forecasts were a joke, they could barely predict that the sun would rise in the east. Nowadays we have forecasts that can reasonably predict that it will start raining in Causeyside Street at 7.45 am in four days time.

    Wilbur got a reaction from waldorf34 in Scottish Independence Referendum 2   
    The voters in the 2016 independence referendum were told that the only chance of Scotland remaining in the EU was to remain part of the Union. That was a lie.
    In the Brexit referendum the Scottish public voted to Remain. England dragged us out.
    Scotland was cheated. Why should we be happy to accept a corrupt result ? 
    We were lied to in 2016 and the present UK Government is Liars Inc. We are tied to these Tory liars because the people of England can't see through them. Ultimately English people are deciding who governs Scotland. That can't be right, can it ?

    If another independence vote takes place in the next year or two it will be Nicola's Waterloo. It'll be like placing all her chips on red or black, if she loses then the independence movement is stuffed once and for all.
    High risk.
